It’s the opening weekend of Cormac Begley’s annual summer series of traditional music concerts and sean-nós dancing opens in Dublin’s beautiful Unitarian Church tomorrow night (Friday 17). 100 concerts will take places as part of the series this summer. Now in it’s seventh year in Galway opened last month in the stunning St Nicholas’ Church.
Over the summer months, the diverse lineup mixes established artists with upcoming traditional musicians including Maitiú Ó Casaide, Cormac and Brendan Begley, Laoise Kelly, Donal McCague and many more!
The concerts began with one purpose – to set the standard for the presentation of traditional Irish music in Ireland. Cormac Begley, organiser and founder, said “The idea is the same as Tunes in the Church in Galway, there’s singing, dancing and interaction from the audience. The artists explain the art of their instrument in a very intimate setting”. Tunes in the Church, Galway and is often mentioned on the ‘best of ‘ when it comes to entertainment on Trip Advisor.
In addition to regular concerts in the Church of St. Nicholas, Galway, 30 extra concerts will be held in the Unitarian Church, Dublin every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from mid-June to late August.
Tickets priced at €15 and group bookings are welcome. For more details, lineup and tickets visits www.tunesinthechurch.com
